Flight of Fantasy

Ripples in the snow-white fabric of peace
The dove has soiled the air
Pressure to conform to all sides
Please the individual panels of my box
To equal satisfaction
That pretences are preformed
And all the time flights of fantasy
Flicker in the mind
To flee this cage of compliance
For I can’t achieve
The granting of complete contentment
Among those who ask of me
To fulfil their ideas
Of who I should be

  1. to misquote a famous saying: “You can please some of the people some of the time, and you can please some of of the people most of the time. but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” 🙂
